NAME

       SHOW - show the value of a run-time parameter

SYNOPSIS

       SHOW name
       SHOW ALL

DESCRIPTION

       SHOW will display the current setting of run-time parameters. These
       variables can be set using the SET statement, by editing the
       postgresql.conf configuration file, through the PGOPTIONS environmental
       variable (when using libpq or a libpq-based application), or through
       command-line flags when starting the postgres server. See Chapter 18,
       Server Configuration, in the documentation for details.

PARAMETERS

       name
           The name of a run-time parameter. Available parameters are
           documented in Chapter 18, Server Configuration, in the
           documentation and on the SET(7) reference page. In addition, there
           are a few parameters that can be shown but not set:

           SERVER_VERSION
               Shows the server's version number.

           SERVER_ENCODING
               Shows the server-side character set encoding. At present, this
               parameter can be shown but not set, because the encoding is
               determined at database creation time.

           LC_COLLATE
               Shows the database's locale setting for collation (text
               ordering). At present, this parameter can be shown but not set,
               because the setting is determined at database creation time.

           LC_CTYPE
               Shows the database's locale setting for character
               classification. At present, this parameter can be shown but not
               set, because the setting is determined at database creation
               time.

           IS_SUPERUSER
               True if the current role has superuser privileges.

       ALL
           Show the values of all configuration parameters, with descriptions.

NOTES

       The function current_setting produces equivalent output; see Section
       9.26, “System Administration Functions”, in the documentation. Also,
       the pg_settings system view produces the same information.

EXAMPLES

       Show the current setting of the parameter DateStyle:

           SHOW DateStyle;
            DateStyle
           -----------
            ISO, MDY
           (1 row)

       Show the current setting of the parameter geqo:

           SHOW geqo;
            geqo
           ------
            on
           (1 row)

       Show all settings:

           SHOW ALL;
                       name         | setting |                description
           -------------------------+---------+-------------------------------------------------
            allow_system_table_mods | off     | Allows modifications of the structure of ...
               .
               .
               .
            xmloption               | content | Sets whether XML data in implicit parsing ...
            zero_damaged_pages      | off     | Continues processing past damaged page headers.
           (196 rows)

COMPATIBILITY
